good choice that show is a high octane powerhouse, though not for the faint of heart, miles away from the peaceful easy breeze of 77

yeah, I figured as much....but before we pigeonhole '77 as some kind of FM-Lite year, I urge any and all to listen to such high-powered octane as the Half Step from 11-6-77, the SugarMags from 10-29-77, the Dew from 5-8-77, or virtually any "Other One" from that year.

Yes, you had gorgeousness and tranquillity in much of the '77 catalogue, like the Love Each Other from 5-25-77 and the Jack a Roe from 5-17-77, but there was a lot of ass-kicking rock and roll thrown in there too (jack straw and Might as well from 10-29-77...oh, hell, don't get me started ;-)!

No slam on 1977. Dead lite to me is not an insult. Just a much mellower sound than 1969. I do think the revamped St. Stephen sucks, but many of the songs are stronger and better.

You don't have to jam at 180 m.p.h to make great music.
